Bumble Bee Food, LLC announced on Wednesday that they are issuing a voluntarily recall of some of their 5 ounce cans of tuna.
The recall was issued after concerns of quality control issues were revealed.
Apparently some of the cans were not properly sealed or seamed in the manufacturing process, leaving the possibility open for contamination. Consuming tuna from one of these cans could potentially lead to illness from pathogens or organisms, although the company says they have not received any reports from consumers who have fallen ill.
The cans in question were sold between Jan. 17, 2013 and Feb. 28, 2013.
Bumble Bee Food Inc. is asking consumers who have a potentially contaminated can to throw the can out and contact them at 800-800-8572 for possible reimbursement.
Product categories and labels being affected are: Brunswick Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Water, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Water, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Vegetable Oil, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk White Albacore in Water, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Water, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk White Albacore in Water and Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk White Albacore in Water.
